Carter Joins Odom as a New Mav

Mavs still waiting to get Odom, Carter on court

It's a big day for the NBA Champion Dallas Mavericks.

Tuesday the team will be honored by the Dallas County Commissioners Court and they've added another new player to the roster.

Vince Carter has signed his expected contract with the Dallas Mavericks.

The defending NBA champion Mavericks announced the signing of the eight-time All-Star on Monday night.

Carter was a spectator for Dallas' only practice Monday, after also watching practice Sunday. The Mavericks didn't announce the details of the contract, but it is expected to be a mid-level exception of $3 million for this season.

Dallas on Sunday acquired 6-foot-10 forward Lamar Odom from the Los Angeles Lakers. He also wasn't at practice Monday.

Coach Rick Carlisle expects Carter and Odom to both take part in the team's media day activities Tuesday.

Re-signed forward Brian Cardinal took part in practice Monday.
